Daniel Ricciardo and Oscar Piastri won’t be the only Aussies in the Formula 1 hot seat this weekend, with Matt Selley appointed as an FIA Steward for this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix.

Selley, who co-chairs the Supercars Stewards Panel, has been an F1 Steward on multiple occasions, most recently at last weekend’s Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix at the famous Imola Circuit.

This weekend, Selley — a lawyer by profession — will be on the FIA stewards panel with Nish Shetty, Derek Warwick and Jean Francois Calmes.

Selley, formerly a regular competitor and official in the South Australia Rally Championship, began officiating in Supercars in 2016.

In 2017, he took on the role of Co-chair of the Panel of Stewards for Supercars.

Selley won’t be the only Supercars product in action at Monaco, with former racer Karl Reindler to drive the FIA AMG Medical Car.


“I keep pinching myself,” Selley told Motorsport Australia.

“For any motorsport fan, this event is the pinnacle. The history, the scenery, the narrow track with its steep climb and descent with multiple blind exits. It’s jaw-dropping.

“I’m very fortunate to be one of the F1 Stewards at this event but I won’t pretend I’m not a little nervous with the world watching.

“I’m obviously very fortunate to be here, but I can say from experience, having been to multiple Grand Prix, that our officials in Australia are truly world class and recognised as such.

“If it wasn’t for the insights and mentoring I received from the likes of Tim Schenken and Michael Masi, what I have learned from my experience with Supercars and the regard in which Australian motorsport officials are held, I wouldn’t be here.”

The Monaco Grand Prix is the eighth round of this year’s F1 season.

The 2024 Repco Supercars Championship will resume at the betr Darwin Triple Crown on June 14-16.
